Principally Speaking

As a high school and college student, Belinda Reyes volunteered with Junior Achievement of Central Florida. As she watched young people gain knowledge and skills in financial literacy, work readiness and entrepreneurship, her conviction grew: Junior Achievement programs should be available to all students. Today, Belinda, the principal of Wetherbee Elementary School in Orlando, Fla., remains an avid supporter of Junior Achievement, and her conviction results in action.

Belinda brings Junior Achievement programs to her students."JA's programs are instrumental in children's lives. The volunteers' commitment and enthusiasm encourages our teachers and sets examples for our students to make a lasting difference in the school and surrounding community," said Belinda. Of volunteer influence, she elaborated, "Investing in children's academic and social needs not only prepares them for a better future, it develops mentor relationships that extend beyond the curriculum."

Through her firsthand experience, Belinda recognizes Junior Achievement?s long-term impact on children, teachers and volunteers. That is why she makes sure that JA is an integral part of her school. Her perspective reminds us that the positive impact of Junior Achievement extends beyond students and the classroom.
